Kitten Development Stages – Pet Tip 249

When we bring a kitten home for the first time to adopt it as a pet, it should be between nine and twelve weeks old. This is so the kitten has a chance to spend time with its mother and so that the kitten becomes socialized with its littermates and learns proper kitten behaviour. But what happens before the kitten comes home? This article will outline some of the important milestones in kittenhood in an effort to familiarize you with some of the stages of kitten development.

Kittens are born blind and deaf and they remain that way for around the first fourteen days of their lives. They use their sense of smell to find their way toward their mothers for nourishment and heat. They really need to stay close to their mothers for these first few weeks as they are unable to regulate their own body temperature. The umbilical cord typically falls off after the first few days of life.

I love to sit in my people's laps and be held. I am very little and cute and soft and cuddly. My second favorite place to be is in the front yard, in a sunny spot under the bougainvillea. I have a very loud, distinctive meow that I use when my people are not giving me enough attention. That makes them pet me! I love it when I get treats: stuff like chicken, tuna, and salmon. I'm a little spoiled that way! I was very embarrassed when I snatched a piece of bell pepper from my person's plate and it became impaled on the two little fangs that poke out of my mouth. Next time I'm sticking to my own bowl!
